Ditto X2: How come the loop has an extra beat?

Question

When I record a loop and finish by pressing the foot switch on the 'and' quaver, it records the 'press' too. Any advice, or is it just just poor technique on my part? I am new to looping.

Answer

If you want to close your loop, that should be on the 1st beat of the theoretic re-start of the loop, not on the up beat before.

To get your recording "square" :

  • Start on the 1st beat of the loop 
  • End on that same 1st beat.
